I DIDN"T KNOW
The pic you see is Chris Dodd--Senator from Connecicut.
We can safely stereoype him as a pompous hypocritical corrupt official.
It first came out that Jim Johnson--hand picked selector for BH Obama's Vice Presidential candidate--got "Sweetheart deals" from subprime lender Countrywide.
Senators Implicated in Countrywide Scandal
Condé Nast Portfolio exposes two U.S. Senators, two former Cabinet members, and a former ambassador to the United Nations, who got favorable mortgage terms from Countrywide Financial.
Among them: Sen. Christopher Dodd, Sen. Kent Conrad, former HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson, former Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna Shalala, and former U.N. ambassador Richard Holbrooke.
Jim Johnson, the man leading Sen. Barack Obama's vice presidential search team, was forced to step aside earlier this week after news that he also received favorable treatment from Countrywide.
The standard excuse--or what they thought was an instant exculpatory statement was:
I DIDN'T KNOW (that they didn't charge me the current rate)
Remember Paris Hilton got stopped after her DUI arrest, and was charged with driving with a suspended license?
Her excuse was " My Secretary didn't tell me".
As a former Law Enforcement Officer, I know that when you get picked up for DUI, you get a test. If that test showws .08 BA or more, the Officer TAKES YOUR LICENSE--there in front of you, and hands you a piece of paper that says YOU ARE SUSPENDED FOR 6 MONTHS--IF YOU WANT A DMV HEARING, YOU CAN REQUEST ONE AT (phone number).
Back to loans--How many of you have taken out loans in the last 5 or 10 years.
You get writer's cramp from signing 50 plus documents, telling all kinds of things, one of which is what your rate is.
So, Dood, the others and Paris are all liars.
The are no better than the liars I used to stop on the road, whose standard excuse was "I DIDN'T KNOW I ( fill in violation)"
